Creation #282. Bonsai 26.


Much better time ion the computer this evening. Turned out to be some corrupted elements in the file I was working on yesterday. Here is another bonsai tree. This style is called raft, or ikadabuki. The style reflects a tree that has fallen but survived by reestablishing its root system and issuing branches upward like several individual trees.

Creation #281.


What a horrible evening for my computer. I hoped to post another bonsai illustration this evening but I’m having issues with the file, or my aging system. I’ve been working for the past hour and a half and have accomplished very little. Not sure what’s going on but I’ve had enough for one night.

Creation #280. Bonsai 25.


It’s been a busy weekend for me. Yet I have still not completed all the tasks I had planned to finish. Here is a possible bonsai style image created for Bonsai Empire. I have four more to create for their website. This image represents a Broom, or Hokidachi Style bonsai. This is a redo of one I created over the summer which didn’t turn out quite the way I had wanted.

I did manage to finished two projects over the weekend, a redesign of The Potomac Bonsai Association’s website should be launched in the next day or two. I also completed a book cover design this afternoon. Progress.

Creation #275. Bonsai 24. Congratulations to Bonsai Empire!


When I started this blog over 2 years ago my intention was to improve myself as a creative professional. I also hoped to connect with other graphic designers in the process. I believe that I have become a better, more educated and practiced designer for my efforts here, but I have not really connected with other designers as I had hoped.

Despite my lack of creative connections I have not been disappointed. This blog has a very small following in the blogosphere and on Facebook that from time to time has given me some recognition and allowed me to form some great friendships.

Tonight I would like to recognize one of those friendships. The website Bonsai Empire founded by Oscar Jonker and Youri Van Pinxteren recently exceeded 10,000 Facebook fans which is quite an accomplishment. I would like to congratulate them on all of their hard work promoting bonsai education to the international community. They have certainly been a great resource and inspiration to me as I have committed to improving my knowledge and skill. I am also honored for the small part I have been allowed to play in their mission.

Once again, congratulations guys on exceeding 10,000 fans! You are doing a great job and I’m happy to be at your service.
